I made these whole wheat tortillas today.
By hand!!! I hand made them!
I wasn't planning on making homemade tortillas today, at all.
I woke up early and for some odd reason,
felt very productive.
I had no idea that was possible, actually.
Then I threw
one of my neighbor's organic, free-range chickens in the crockpot,
using this recipe that is no-fail fantabulous.
I do more than lemon though.
I also add:
- Honey for allergies
- Cayenne for metabolism/digestion
- Turmeric for inflammation
cleaned the kitchen the.
I KNOW!! Can you believe it??? So I didn't get dragged down with that.
I also saw it was beginning to get light outside...
So I ran out to water the flowers.
It occurred to me I apparently
over-fertilized this particular basket last week.
Now the garden hose doesn't extend all the way out to the flower pot by the road....
So I always have to grab the watering can that sits by the garden shed...
Anyhoo, I think I've been doing a good job keeping
these flowers in this planter watered...
Sometimes I'm not.
Note to self:
Be productive tomorrow and take some soap and water to that sign frame.
Additional Note to Self:
Do not wear pajamas while doing this.
And I hightail it out to the sign, all the while praying nobody drives by and sees me in my pajamas.
Know what else is tall? The corn!
You just can't beat the beauty of Iowa in summer in the early morn hours!
Seriously!! A monkey, a 2 year old, the neighbor's
Border Collie that stops by occasionally...ANYBODY!
Okay, I just noticed I only have 3 ingredients here.
For Pete's sake, someone just commit me already, please.
The 4th ingredient is olive oil, yeesh.
Okay, let's get back to today's topic,
I MADE HOMEMADE TORTILLAS AND IT WAS SO EASY!
Only 4 ingredients!!
This recipe is from the My Fitness Pal website.

There are several brands, but I do like this one
4-Ingredient Whole Wheat Tortillas
- 2 cups White Whole Wheat Flour
- 3 tablespoons Extra Virgin Olive Oil
- 3/4 teaspoon Salt
- 2/3 cup warm Water
In a bowl, mix together the flour, oil and salt. Slowly add the warm water while stirring until a rough dough comes together. Add a little extra water if needed. Turn the dough onto the counter and knead for about two minutes. Return to bowl and let rest for 20 minutes.
Divide dough into 8 equal balls. Using a rolling pin, roll each ball into a circle. You’ll want them to be pretty thin.
Heat a pan over medium high heat and grease very lightly. Drop one tortilla into the pan and let cook until bubbles form, about 1 minute. Flip over and cook another minute, pressing down with a spatula if needed. Repeat with remaining dough.
Use immediately, or store in an airtight container and either refrigerate or freeze. Warm just before serving to soften.
Throw all four ingredients into the bowl.
how easy can this be???
for two minutes
Let it rest for 20 minutes.
This is easy too!
Form 8 golf ball size balls!
I did NOT use flour, it just rolls out very nicely like this!
This was my very first one. Not too bad, huh!
I about crapped,
at how easy this was!
even better and
Some I even rolled thinner.
I had the skillet on Medium heat.
I waited till it bubbled and browned a bit...
...and then I flipped the tortilla over for about the same amount
a minute or two.
I - AM - SPARTACUS!!!!!

AND I WAS DANCIN' AND ACTIN' LIKE A FOOL AND
And then reality always bites me in the
in the tortilla.

Then I started putting together a simple taco just to see how these tortillas really are....
We have roast chicken and tomatoes here...

Okay, gearing up. This is the key moment.
How are these tortillas...

So anyway, blogging about these tortillas made me think of this vintage advertisement I have hanging out on my kitchen shelf for Coronado Ranges...
"CONSTANT CLEAN OVEN!"
Man, I NEED that!
It's like Cathy is talking directly to me,
"You will never be complete without a constant clean oven, Angie.
Your oven will always be dirty if you do not buy Coronado."
Cathy's right, you know.
I just opened up my constant dirty oven and this is how it is looking.
Aaaand of course there's a leftover pan with food hiding in there.
Cathy thinks so too.
CATHY CAN STUFF IT!!!!
Anyhow....the chicken I threw in the crockpot this morning, remember?
I made broth with it after I had deboned the chicken.
Click HERE for the recipe I use for chicken broth,
I didn't cook it overnight, I cooked it during the day.
And here is the yummy stock
I procured from the crockpot fixins!
So after taking an excruciatingly long time to tell you about my simple
4 - Ingredient Whole Wheat Tortillas that I made,
I will sign off for now.
When I come back, I will be sharing an elegant twice baked potato cup recipe and a dill dip recipe that you will send me a thank you note and five thousand dollars in appreciation.
It could happen!
It's THAT good!
Okay, thanks for checking in y'all,
have a great week and
we'll talk at ya soon!
